This is a pretty good hostel. Walking distance to the main plaza and close to the port where you depart for all jungle tours. Good breakfast and kitchen. Hammocks. Pretty clean. Nice little living room with a small TV. BUT the mosquitos are outrageous. We never got bit much after 6 days in the jungle until we came to this place. Since the rooms are around an outside garden, the place is swarming with mosquitos (inside the rooms!), so be aware!!


Good and (for jungle towns) quite cheap hostel with mosquito nets


It's a little rustic, but friendly and near downtown. The staff don't speak much English, but there's usually someone among the guests who can translate if your Spanish is weak. The rooms are clean, with bed nets and fans, but if you're unlucky you'll end up in a top bunk with a floor fan that doesn't reach that far up, and then it's sweltering. I've stayed here twice for one night at a time, and once there were meetings in the common area so the guests couldn't use it, which was inconvenient.


lovely hostel that offers great trips both to the jungle and in Puerto Maldonado


really nice to stay there, nice garden, friedly staff, good breakfast


No hot shower is a big issue for me. Because I had long hair.


Comfortable enough, wouldnt say it warrents such a high rating. Gives a bit of a genuine feel to it in terms of being near the jungle. Rooms were clean but the private rooms give absolutely no privacy, all they are seperated by is thin wooden walls. A fact that was unfortunately made clear by a loud couple next door which made it feel like it was happening in our room - which was very awkward. You also have no privacy through the window (not connected comment in anyway!


great spot, ideal location, clean, fast wifi, plenty of bathrooms, good breakfast, helpful staff, storage lockers, bike rentals. would definitely return here. gracias por todo!


There's not much choice in Puerto maldanado. The staff were friendly but did not speak much English. The shower was cold, wifi was unreliable and breakfast was a little under average. There was night club next door (that was pretty empty) but the music went on until 5am. Not the best if you need to sleep.


Very bad nights sleep- the place is next to a bar/club and the music didnt finish till 6am!!!!!!!! Staff dont speak/understand english- didnt bother me but just in case it does Room was lovely. Breakfast was cooked eggs and bread


Good hostel. Meet lots of nice people here. Staff helpful and trip into the jungle organised with the hostel was amazing. Toilets and bathrooms always super clean with loo roll. Not frequently hit water. Good brekkie. Nice hammocks. Very noisy at night every night as right next to a night club.


Our group was parents 55 yo and our kids of 24 and 28. It was great. They worked out a jungle tour for us that met everyone's needs for 5 days! Jony was an excellent tour guide! They also worked out the stay to go with the tour. Definitely recommend the hostel and the tours from there!
